Photographer's Note

My 600th shot here on TrekEarth...

The 01:00am wakeup call comes through and I get myself ready to meet my guide at the hotel reception for the 1hr drive to the base of 'Mount Batur', an active Volcano on the island of Bali. We start our climb at about 3am in the pitch black with nothing but the aid of torches and the help of our local guide 'Gaday' (or G'day as we joked with him about the Australian connotation).

The first half of the climb was quite gradual, but the second half became quite steep and you really had to be sure footed. Thankfully I had brought a thick fleece and my photography gloves for the top as it really was quite cold with the wind chill. Gaday and the other guides prepared breakfast for us, but the only thing I had on my mind was getting my shots...
